Frankly, I wish I had a native 720p tube. I just think a "p" scan is a clearer display as a computer monitor since "i" will inherently have some flicker. Then consider that when you put 1080i on a native 720p set you're asking the TV to operate outside its design for best performance When you get 1080i up and running I'd be curious to hear how you feel about this.
Yes a read the entire post and there's no solution for me. Just can't find the "proper modeline" for 1080i for my plasma.
